Dunelm deputy chairman reduces stake
Dunelm's deputy chairman announced plans to reduce his stake in the furniture retailer as its shares raced back towards their record highs.
After the close of markets, the company said that Will Adderley will cut his stake by 7.4%, or roughly 15m shares, via an accelerated bookbuild secondary placing.
The shares were currently held WA Capital Limited, a firm controlled by him and his spouse.
